### Front Tires

#### P ... Passenger Vehicle

When a tire size begins with a P, it signifies the tire is a p-metric size that was designed to be fitted on vehicles that are primarily used as passenger vehicles. This includes cars, minivans, sport utility vehicles and light duty pickup trucks (typically 1/4- and 1/2-ton load capacity). The use of p-metric sizes began in the late 1970s and they are the most frequently used type of tire size today.

#### 225 millimeters

Following the letter(s) that identify the type of vehicle and/or type of service for which the tire was designed, the three-digit numeric portion identifies the tire's section width/cross section in millimeters.

The 225 indicates that this tire is 225 millimeters across from the widest point when mounted and measured on a specified width wheel. Because many people think of measurements in inches, the 225mm can be converted to inches by dividing the width in millimeters by 25.4 (the number of millimeters per inch).

225mm / 25.4 = 8.86"

#### 50%

The ratio of the height of the tire's cross-section to it's width. 50 means that the height is equal to 50% of the tire's width.

Typically, following the three digits identifying the tire's width in millimeters is a two-digit number that identifies the tire's profile or aspect ratio.

The 50 indicates that this tire size's sidewall height (from rim to tread) is 50% of its width. The measurement is the tire's section height, and also referred to as the tire's series, profile or aspect ratio. The higher the number, the taller the sidewall. The lower the number, the lower the sidewall. We know that this tire size's section width is 225mm and that its section height is 50% of 225mm. By converting the 225mm to inches (225 / 25.4 = 8.86") and multiplying it by 50% (.50) we confirm that this tire size results in a tire section height of4.43".

#### R ... Radial

The R in the P225/50ZR16 size identifies that the tire has a radial construction in which the tire's plies "radiate" out from the center of the wheel. Radial tires are by far the most popular type of tire today representing over 98% of all tires sold.

If the R in the size was replaced with a D (P225/50ZR16), it would identify that the internal tire body plies crisscross on a diagonal and that the tire has a "bias ply" construction. Tires using this construction are for light truck and spare tire applications.

#### 16" wheel

The 16 indicates the tire and wheel diameter designed to be matched together.

Tires that have a rim diameter expressed in inches (P225/50ZR16, as well as8, 10, 12, 13,14,15, 17, 18, 19,20, 22, 23, 24,26 and 28) are called "inch rim" sizes. These are the most common types of tire sizes and are used on most cars, minivans, vans, sport utility vehicles and light duty light trucks.

Tires and wheels with unique rim diameters should never be combined with traditional "inch rim" tires and wheels.

#### Z ... over 240mph

The maximum speed that the tire can sustain for 10 minutes.

Today, the only tires that continue to include the speed rating "in" the tire size (P225/50ZR16) are Z-speed rated tires. In this case, following the two digits used to identify the aspect ratio are the letters ZR to identify the tire's speed rating (Z) and its internal construction (R). Since 1991, all other speed ratings are identified in the tire's Service Description.

### Rear Tires

#### P ... Passenger Vehicle

When a tire size begins with a P, it signifies the tire is a p-metric size that was designed to be fitted on vehicles that are primarily used as passenger vehicles. This includes cars, minivans, sport utility vehicles and light duty pickup trucks (typically 1/4- and 1/2-ton load capacity). The use of p-metric sizes began in the late 1970s and they are the most frequently used type of tire size today.

#### 245 millimeters

Following the letter(s) that identify the type of vehicle and/or type of service for which the tire was designed, the three-digit numeric portion identifies the tire's section width/cross section in millimeters.

The 245 indicates that this tire is 245 millimeters across from the widest point when mounted and measured on a specified width wheel. Because many people think of measurements in inches, the 245mm can be converted to inches by dividing the width in millimeters by 25.4 (the number of millimeters per inch).

245mm / 25.4 = 9.65"

#### 45%

The ratio of the height of the tire's cross-section to it's width. 45 means that the height is equal to 45% of the tire's width.

Typically, following the three digits identifying the tire's width in millimeters is a two-digit number that identifies the tire's profile or aspect ratio.

The 45 indicates that this tire size's sidewall height (from rim to tread) is 50% of its width. The measurement is the tire's section height, and also referred to as the tire's series, profile or aspect ratio. The higher the number, the taller the sidewall. The lower the number, the lower the sidewall. We know that this tire size's section width is 245mm and that its section height is 50% of 245mm. By converting the 245mm to inches (245 / 25.4 = 9.65") and multiplying it by 50% (.50) we confirm that this tire size results in a tire section height of4.83".

#### R ... Radial

###### Load Index/Service Description

NaNlb load. The tire assigned numerical value used to compare relative load carrying capabilities.

Nissan Motor Company Ltd, usually shortened to Nissan, is a Japanese multinational automobile manufacturer headquartered in Nishi-ku, Yokohama. The company sells its cars under the Nissan, Infiniti, and Datsun brands with in-house performance tuning products labelled Nismo.

The company traces its name to the Nissan zaibatsu, now called Nissan Group.

Since 1999, Nissan has been part of the Renault–Nissan–Mitsubishi Alliance, a partnership between Nissan, Mitsubishi Motors and French automaker Renault. As of 2013, Renault holds a 43.4% voting stake in Nissan, while Nissan holds a 15% non-voting stake in Renault. From 2009 to 2017 Carlos Ghosn served as CEO of both companies. In February 2017 Ghosn announced he would step down as CEO of Nissan on 1 April 2017, while remaining chairman of the company[7]

In 2013, Nissan was the sixth largest automaker in the world, after Toyota, General Motors, Volkswagen Group, Hyundai Motor Group, and Ford.[8] Taken together, the Renault–Nissan Alliance would be the world’s fourth largest automaker, however Nissan is the leading Japanese brand in China, Russia and Mexico.[9]

Nissan is the world's largest electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer, with global sales of more than 275,000 all-electric vehicles as of mid-December 2016.[10] The top-selling vehicle of the carmaker's lineup is the Nissan Leaf, an all-electric car and the world's top-selling highway-capable plug-in electric car in history; more than 240,000 have been sold worldwide as of September 2016.[
